Rolls-Royce unveils the One Thousand and One Nights Bespoke Ghost Collection

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 15, 2012

Tales of ‘The Arabian Nights Entertainment’ were the inspiration behind the Bespoke collection of Ghost family cars built by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Middle East. The Bespoke team at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, created a range of two-tone paint schemes that drew on a warm colour palette that functioned as the ideal backdrop for hand-painted coachlines.

These cars feature details that were meticulously applied to convey the Arabic words ‘One Thousand and One Nights’ and conclude in an intricate design that frames its door handles. For centuries, the epic tales that Scheherazade told Shahryar have drawn the attention of storytellers and readers. These tales will forever be treated as one of the most renowned works of literature to come from the region.

According to Geoff Briscoe, Director Middle East, Africa and Latin America for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a Rolls-Royce is the “perfect canvas” for these incredibly individual motoring masterpieces. The bespoke designers prove just how capable they are in delving into a rich culture with this collection.

The launch for the limited ‘One Thousand and One Nights Bespoke Ghost Collection will be done gradually. It will have three chapters. Watch out for Chapter One on November 28 at the Sharjah International Automobile Show. Chapter Two will come in the first quarter of 2013 while Chapter Three will take place in the third quarter of next year.
